When you get married to someone, you inherit a lot.
You inherit them. Their family. Their values, interests, ambitions.
You also inherit, their traditions.
And when it comes to the holy days of the year, you inherit those too.
And if they happen to fall on a different day, well…
DOUBLE THE FUN.
We have Catholic Christmas. Orthodox Christmas.
Catholic Easter. And then Orthodox Easter.
Double the fun! Double the food! Double the chocolate, and presents, and memories, and good times…
And it suits me just fine that we have these different, but oh-so-similar backgrounds. That we can blend them together in our family, baby girl gets a cultural taste of both, and we can make all of this work, FOR ALL.
And on that note… Happy Orthodox Easter to anyone celebrating today. I am about to pop, and yet I am going to walk back to the kitchen now for more sweet bread, otherwise known as kozinjak…
Cultural differences are beautiful. 💖💖
